My Memoirs - family history - Margaret Card's family

Yesterday I showed you a few photos of Margaret Card and today I introduce her family to you. Margaret is sitting in the middle of the group consisting of all her children. I don't know where dad is, i.e. my great grandfather, Arthur Taylor Jenner.

At the back are Stella (my grandmother (Oma)) and next to her is her older sister Elsie.

In the middle row are: Mildred, Miriam, Margaret Card, Sybil and Edward.

In front of them are Ronald and Kathleen, sitting on Margaret's lap.

In the front row are Frank and Olive.

Isn't it a beautiful photograph and one I am very proud to own.

My Memoirs - family history

This is a picture of my great grandmother, Margaret Jenner. She was Margaret Card before she married my great grandfather, Arthur Taylor Jenner.

They were married in Mutford, Suffolk in 1888 and lived in Lowestoft. They had nine children.

This picture shows Margaret in her younger years holding my Oma (grandmother) Stella Jenner.

This is where Margaret lived - Princes Road, Lowestoft.

The next picture shows a newspaper cutting of Margaret's husband, Arthur Taylor Jenner, taken from an article about 'Lowestoft's Past'
